Seven New Sets and a New Challenge

We just received word that Maria is going to allow our blog followers to order the
new stamps today even though the official release is scheduled for tomorrow! There will be a special bundle, the Full Sink, which will contain all 7 of the new sets at a 10% discount through July 12! And as always, if you add the promo code LYNN10KSS you will get an addition 10% off of your entire Kitchen Sink order. The Full Sink special also qualifies for free shipping in the U.S.

Here are a few more samples to give you an idea or two about what these wonderful new sets can do!!

I can tell already that Letters from the Past will be one of my "go to" sets for masculine cards! They are always a challenge for me.

As if that wasn't enough excitement in the Kitchen today, Kitchen Crew member Lisa Somerville is hosting Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge #15 and has created this fun sketch for us to use in our creations! I hope you will join us and play along!! There are only two requirements: use Kitchen Sink images and this sketch to create your entry.

Three winners will be selected by a random number generator. Just go to the Kitchen Sink Weblog and upload your project using Mr. Linky! The contest will close in three weeks.

Here is the card I have created for the challenge! I just love these little piggies from Ducks & Pigs Multi Step Clear Stamps. I generated the sentiment on my computer for this card. The background was created with another new release set from Kitchen Sink, Big & Bold Swatches Clear Stamps!
